Charles II Japanned Cabinet of exceptional condition c. 1675 raised on a contemporary stand

An English Charles II Japanned cabinet of exceptional condition c. 1675 with complete original brassware raised on a contemporary stand. The underside of one of the drawers features a Baron’s stamp, which is currently the subject of much debate and further research. 

The exterior of the cabinet is a fine example of lacquer- and raised gesso-work. Appropriate to a piece of its period, the exterior is beautifully oxidised yet untouched with stunning patination. By contrast, the interior is brightly decorated with chinoiserie in delightful unoxidised, original condition.

The interior features English interpretations of typical Japanese scenes of couples, which span the human and animal kingdom, from humans to Muntjac deer to cranes to pigeons, that run from the celestial to the underworld.

Condition

Excellent condition lacquerwork throughout with original chased brass furniture, lock plate and ring pull handles with floral back plates.

Provenance

From private UK collection. Research suggests that it was also the property of a hitherto unnamed Baron.
